Tailor Made Courses

Overview

ELTS has many years of experience in the design and delivery of tailor-made programmes for groups.

We work with agents, group leaders, schools, universities, and training organisers to create courses which meet your specialist needs and wants. The content and duration of your bespoke course can be specified by you or designed in collaboration with us.

For Young Adults

ELTS is your ideal partner for a tailor-made course for teenagers and young adults. We create bespoke closed group courses for schools, group leaders, and English Plus courses which combine English and an area of special interest. Recent, English Plus courses have included:

  • Enjoyebre – a bespoke summer programme of English plus activities for a Spanish group. 
  • English plus projects for Chongqing University Of Technology (CQUT), China

A typical programme includes English language tuition in the mornings and activities in the afternoon.  Courses usually include social events and excursions to local places of interest. Please see the Contact Us section to find out how to send us details of how we can help you to design a course for you.

ELTS has a duty of care to safeguard all students aged under 18 in its care. ELTS will ensure the safety and protection of all under 18s enrolled on its programmes through adherence to the Safeguarding guidelines that we have adopted.

We will endeavour to ensure that under 18s are protected whilst studying at ELTS. We will do this by:

  • Making sure all staff are carefully selected and DBS checked
  • Providing appropriate training for staff in issues of child protection
  • Providing a dedicated Safeguarding officer who meets all under 18s on a weekly basis
  • Taking attendance and monitoring student behaviour
  • Ensuring that students are supervised during lessons and trips
  • Adhering to the University Safeguarding Vulnerable groups policy
  • Providing students with a 24-hour emergency contact number
  • Providing students with an under 18s handbook
  • Providing group leaders with a group leaders handbook

We also require group leaders to travel with each group. Group leaders must also provide evidence of their suitability to work with under 18s (normally a police check letter) and sign our group leaders contract.

For Adults

ELTS is your ideal partner for a tailor-made course for adults. We create bespoke closed group courses for adults.

As part of a university, we have excellent links with academic departments and the wider community. Recent, closed group adult courses have included:

A typical programme includes English language tuition in the mornings and activities in the afternoon.  Courses usually include social events and excursions to local places of interest.
